For those of us with busy and active lifestyles, it can be a real challenge to keep the body sufficiently fueled day after day.
Between work, working out and the rest of life, we can end up eating on the run more than we would like to.
Cue food preparation.
You’ve probably heard or read that you increase your chances of eating poorly if you are caught out without food and that advance meal prepping is absolutely the answer.
But not everyone wants to spend their Sunday afternoons chopping onions, weighing out chicken and adding just enough cheese to keep the food calculator happy.
For many, especially those who have only recently embarked on a training program, food prepping can be a source of stress.

Life eventually gets in the way.
Finding balance in our choices is...

Is there ever enough time in a single day?
Like the U2 song from 1987, “ Race Against Time,” each day is a constant effort to get as much done in 24 hours and still find time for sleep.
When we become overburdened, our health and well-being get pushed to the back burner.
The trick isn’t needing more time, but rather being able to get the most out of time you do have without burning yourself out so you can maintain your health and well-being.
First, create a to-do list.
If something needs to get done, write it down.
The stress of carrying chores around in your head will only keep you awake at night and there is a good probability that you will forget them while focusing on other tasks.
Keeping a notebook handy is a great way to track and prioritize tasks so they get done, leaving more time...

The workplace is where most people spend a large portion of their waking hours.
That’s why it’s so important that employers collaborate with fitness professionals and wellness agencies to encourage activity during the workday.
As a society, we can’t ignore the fact that many Americans find it difficult to fit anything else into their day. Outside of the home, the workplace is where most people spend the most time.
That is why working with employers to encourage activity during working hours is so important.
Good health and well-fit employees are fundamental to social wellbeing and workplace productivity.
Healthy workplaces are not just a social concern however. They are economically driven as well.
In fact, per Forbes magazine, “Injuries, illness and medical appointments are the most commonly reported reasons for missing work”. This absenteeism comes at a great cost to employers. Absenteeism costs associated with chronic diseases and health risk...
